In short, a lot. London to New York flights serve up the kind of sightseeing opportunities that most cities can only aspire to. Manhattan is the star attraction, and the place to head to if the Empire State Building, Central Park and Times Square are on your to-do list. But there are four more boroughs to explore if you truly want to get a feel for the place, so save some time for the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island, too. Weather-wise, New York winters are cold, so you’ll want to pack your warmest clothes if you’re visiting between Thanksgiving in November and the start of April. If you’d prefer to pack your summer wardrobe, book a London to New York flight between May and October instead.
